More to Love??

Is there really "More to Love" about this new Fox reality dating show?

Apparently, the premise of this show comes from the relevance that the average size of a woman on reality T.V. is a size 2. Fair enough. But is it really necessary to create a show only featuring plus size ladies?? Could we not have a equal mix of thin, average, and plus size women?

Let me preface the rest of this post by acknowledging that I have never been large (excluding pregnancy.) I have always been the skinny kid, but I think that this no way affects my views of the broadcast of "More to Love."

What we have here in the end result, is an onslaught of women publicly displaying their self esteem issues tied to their weight. Almost every single one of them has cried openly on camera due to " a guy never loving me just for who I am" or having to wear a swimsuit in the group date. I understand weight issues are extremely common - in ALL women. But I dare to say it is downright ridiculous and even somewhat immoral to think the solution to the problem is having them fight over one man on public television. What these women seem is need to intensive therapy rather than the rejection of one more man (for all but one of them.)

Any kind of show like this, from the Bachelorette to whatever other reality slime is consuming society's decomposing mind, is filthy. Whoever came up with the idea is brilliant, but not commendable. Several women (or men) baring their claws and fangs over the prize of a man or woman every single one of the contestants automatically falls in love with. How do they do that? It's more like a brothel than a game show about falling in love. What will they think of next?

more question than comment...If you are slamming the people who choose (and it is their choice) to participate in these type reality shows because you consider these shows slime....why are you watching them??
